I'd like to tell you all about myself and hopefully gain some insight to what it is I have. I don't like being in social situations. I like to just be by myself and not really talk to anyone. For example, a great day of school for me would be to go to class, finish my tasks for those classes, and go home. I hate going to parties and such because I am forced to be around and interact with people. Because of this, I'm a shut in. I also don't trust people very easily and don't have many GOOD friends. I'm fine with all this, I like to be by myself. When I do talk to people, I try to be nice. But more often then not, I cant hold a conversation very well because it's hard to find someone with similar interests and I dislike small talk. I will answer questions that you have if it provides a more specific answer. Thank you!

Sounds like you are an introvert, social anxiety would mean you are afraid of social situations and introverted is you don't like social situations...
(well, that's it in a nutshell)

yes..... that sounds like social displeasure not social anxiety. you sound like you like to be alone, that is totally ok for a lot of people. it doesn't make you wrong. and don't think it does even though we live in a world where we are pressured to fit into the mould of happy smiling outgoing people. we are not all the same.

I am also introverted however the difference is do want to go out sometimes and socialise and make new friends however my fears are what is stopping me.
